Planning to fly to Brazil? Think twice. Federal Police out there are on a nationwide strike, over pay!
The strike has caused major delays for international passengers (inbound/outbound), affecting even domestic travelers.

Brazil's Federal Police Strike over Pay
Written by Edward Fox


Brazil's federal police have begun an indefinite strike, which could weaken the country's border security and counternarcotics efforts.

The majority of Brazil's 15,000 federal police went on strike on August 7 to demand higher wages. Thirty percent of the force are still working to deal with emergencies, but border control and federal investigations have all been affected, reported Veja .

No time limit has been set for the strike, though talks with the government are expected to take place next week.
